You set the alarm for 5:00 am, skipped breakfast and braved traffic to get to the gym, only to find your workout Zen crushed by space invaders, super-talkers and gym slobs. You know the type-you'll find them hogging the locker room bench, gabbing loudly on their cell phones, and leaving used tissues and sweaty towels everywhere.
Author and New York City attorney Lori Pines loves her daily workout, and thinks we are all entitled to a peaceful, energizing session at the gym-but it would sure help if all gym-goers read this book! Featuring six gym types you don’t want to be, this little book will help gym-newbies learn what behavior is OK, and help experienced gym-goers curb their “gym rage” and cope with their less considerate gym mates.
 
With satirical descriptions and hilarious illustrations, Pines pokes fun at stereotypical offenders—the slobs, hogs, space invaders, super-talkers, grouches and exhibitionists—while simultaneously promoting  fitness and encouraging readers to be accommodating.
“Let’s face facts—it isn’t easy getting to the gym. You have to walk or drive there, change your clothes, psych yourself up for the pain and exertion, and then clean yourself up and change your clothes afterwards,” Pines writes. “The last thing we need is a further deterrent to getting to the gym. That’s why there is nothing more annoying than having to deal with people who don’t know how to behave there.”
Polite gym regulars will have a laugh, and maybe one or two gym “hogs” will find a copy of this book tastefully tucked into their bag!

About the Author:


Leaving dirty towels lying around the locker room is just one example of the thoughtless behavior author and New York City-based lawyer Lori Pines witnessed every time she went to the gym. And it didn’t stop there.
“I saw so many offenses; I just couldn’t ignore them anymore,” says Pines, who took a break from writing about complex legal issues and instead pokes fun at the annoying habits of her fellow gym-goers in The Little Book of Gym Etiquette: A Handbook for Dealing with Annoying People at the Gym.
“Working out is supposed to be a stress-relieving, not stress-inducing activity,” she says. “So it’s important that we do everything we possibly can to enable all gym-goers to get the most out of each workout and to minimize those uncomfortable and distracting feelings of ‘gym rage’.”
A life-long athlete, Pines played softball, basketball and ran track as a child. She has been an avid gym-goer since her 20s, and currently belongs to several gyms in Manhattan.
Pines is a Litigation partner in a large international law firm. A member of the American Bar Association and the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, she serves on the Committee on Women in the Profession and chairs the Subcommittee on Women Starting in the Profession.
Pines received her J.D. from New York University School of Law. She has a Master’s in Public Affairs from Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and a B.A. in Biology from Harvard College.
Born in Livingston, New Jersey, Pines resides in New York City with her husband and two athletic children.
